The Great Colm Lynch announces VILLAGE SHOW

No Comments

Our wonderful and very handsome Meteor Nominee COLM LYNCH (AS SEEN ON NATIONAL TV TG4 TODAY FM, RTE RADIO1, IRADIO AND BBC) announces special gig in The Village on April 22nd.

The new single KISS MY BLUES AWAY is certainly a vast testament to Colm’s musical ability. Radio stations such as TODAY FM, F104, iRadio, RTE Radio1, 98FM and more have recently invited Colm in to celebrate his new single and to show their support. Remaining true to his philosophy that ‘a good song should have a strong melody and meaningful lyrics’, this critically acclaimed artist is eager to impress with his latest offering. If recent raving reviews from the Times, The Irish Independent, Hotpress, The Star and more are anything to go by, this album is certainly set to please and win over old and indeed new fans. Colm recently performed in the RDS to over 16,000 spectators at the interval of The Leinster Rugby Game after being invited by the organisers. He was also recently Nominated for Best newcomer Award at The Meteors. He will be performing a very special showcase on April 22nd in The Village on Wexford Street Dublin.

Ocean Colour Scene This ‘Saturday’- The Olympia

No Comments

Ocean Colour Scene play The Olympia in Dublin this Saturday March 6th, celebrating their latest album  SATURDAY and current single ‘Magic Carpet Days’

Birmingham’s emperors of rock’n’folk Ocean Colour Scene are back with their ninth studio album, entitled Saturday (COOKCD511).

In the two years since 2007’s On The Leyline – described by Uncut as their “career best” – they’ve played with thrash metal bands in Korea, stolen the show at this year’s ‘V’ (where they were named ‘Band Of The Festival’ by Radio 2 and Absolute Radio) and later this month will jet off for a debut show in Dubai.

From the opening bars of  psych-folk opener ‘100 Floors Of Perception’ – written by Simon about the on-going financial crisis – to epic climax ‘Rockfield’  (think ‘Baba O’Riley’ meets ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’), it’s a reminder than when it comes to delivering  classic rock hooks there is simply no one better.  Denim-driven boogie ‘Old Pair Of Jeans’ (written by Bennett) will delight those hankering for the full-tilt mod-pop of ‘For Dancers Only’, while Harry Kidnap’ (written in tribute to John Weller) boasts shades of North Atlantic Drift stand-out ‘Make The Deal’.

Lyrical themes ranging from Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist (‘Mrs Maylie’)  to the British way of life ( standout ‘Village Life’), meanwhile, are a reminder of  Simon’s acute observational eye.

Musically, it’s just as impressive.  Listen close and you’ll hear echoes of  everyone from Simon & Garfunkel to Mott The Hoople and Vivaldi in these loose-limbed grooves,  not to mention  trippy string sections, sky-scraping ‘Great Gig In The Sky’ backing vocals, punk riffs and even the occasional burst of mandolin.

Surefire smash ‘Magic Carpet Days’, meanwhile (key lyric: “The world won’t shake you/Knock you down and break you/I’ll steer you through these magic carpet days”) is a reminder that their belief in the Mod aesthetic of self-improvement remains as strong as ever.

With a full U.K tour booked for early next year, OCS will be celebrating in style. But before then…and

In the meantime, they’ll see you in Ireland in The Olympia on Saturday.

Irish Times Album review- John, Shelly & the Creatures

No Comments

JOHN, SHELLY + THE CREATURES

Dinosaur Big Life Music ****

These Northerners arrive relatively unheralded and unhyped, which is a good thing. Unlike the other Northern Irish band of the moment (Two Door Cinema Club) John, Shelly + the Creatures let the music talk, and the result is more conversational and casual than in your face. The fact is that songs such as Cold War, Sunny Side Street, Sight of Your Chest, Killer, Frost and Long May You Reign do what really good songs should: sneak up on you, twist preconceptions, change your mind and then take it over. The range of instruments in use, including flugelhorn, mandolin, cello, viola, violin, glockenspiel and xylophone, indicates not so much an everything-and-the-kitchen-sink approach (which would usually be the case) but an exceptional grasp of texture, tone and theme. A shoe-in for next year’s Choice Music Prize nominations list? See www.johnshellyandthecreatures.com TONY CLAYTON-LEA

No Comments

BLOG EXCERPT Taken from WWW.CAROSEL.IE :

Progression, the right way.

Hello everyone, so here we are in Paris, things have been moving swiftly since we arrived in January. We’ve been meeting up and jamming with some cool musicians, getting to know some creative people, having meetings with some interesting folk. Also we were lucky to be invited to the Irish Embassy in Paris for lunch last week and got to meet the Ambassador.Other news….just yesterday we signed off on a new worldwide management agreement. We are in the throes of recording a new album- but before that we will release our new EP titled STAR – which has a brand new song and some re-recorded & reproduced tracks from our debut album that is showing of a new direction in our music. Not to say that we are forgetful of our origins, in the new record (yet to be titled) we will still have our signature lo-fi numbers also. We can’t wait to work with some top producers on the new record.

Our new management is with INNATE MUSIC (Jamie Cullum, Dame Shirley Bassey, Universal Records) and GSPR and is one career choice that we fully embrace and are so excited to be a part of. The months ahead will see us travel a lot between territories: UK, France, Germany, Japan & Ireland. We are going in to record 2 new music videos next month and are very excited about that too as we are working with Top class directors.

We will be in London next week for some gigs and to meet up with some new members of the team and then will be back in Ireland in early March for some styling & re-stocking of cd’s. May will see us touring in Ireland, Northern Ireland, the UK and France. New Booking details will be available online soon with the dates to follow. So please make sure you’re on our mailing list!
